Real systems have no top.
The focus on external interfaces is inevitable in a method that asks "What will the system do for the end user?" s the key question: the answer will tend to emphasize the most external aspects.
Objects are there for the picking.
You can either have software quality or you can have pointer arithmetic;
You cannot have both at the same time.
Bubbles don't crash.
Incorrect documentation is often worse than no documentation.
Correctness is clearly the prime quality. If a system does not do what it is supposed to do, then everything else about it matters little.
